Slowly Breaking Out

Just wonder if anyone has experienced this also.

I don't think I've had an IB since I started Accutane just over 2 months ago. Before starting, my really bad areas were my chin and jawline. I had slightly worse breakouts on my chin and jawline just after starting accutane, but those areas are really clearing up nicely. Prior to starting Accutane I also had small white heads near the corners of my eyes. They just kinda sat as hard little bumps under the surface of my skin FOREVER. I am now noticing that they are starting to come to the surface and I am breaking out in those areas. Has anyone else experienced this, kind of breakouts and clearing area by area instead of the whole face at once?

Yep yep. Totally normal. It's a very slow working drug so try not to lose hope. Your skin may purge off and on (for some folks it's continuous until after the course).
